Expressing creativity comes in many different shapes and sizes. From a young age, we’re encouraged to express our creativity – whether it’s through music, painting or making fun videos. Videos have become even more popular than before, with YouTube, Instagram and other social channels being second nature.
Creativity is especially important in the workplace. Employees can be challenged in different ways while expressing themselves. When they get their creative juices flowing, they’re more engaged and continue living company values if you give them a chance to let them be creative.
This led us to create a values-based video challenge for our global event. To raise awareness for this challenge, we posted it on our employee engagement platform more than once and sent reminder throughout as well. Teams had a few weeks to work on their videos. Below are a handful of some of the videos that various teams submitted and all of them connect to one of our eight values.

Let the magic happen and give your employees opportunities to express their creativity at work. Not only will people connect more to your company values, but they’ll feel respected, energized and ultimately be more engaged. Do you have any examples of culture videos you’d like to share?
